Mindfulness Based Conversations (MBC), an evidence based approach applying mindfulness to consultation with teachers, parents and children
This workshop is focused on the growing field of Mindfulness Based Approaches. It will explore the theoretical and evidence base for Mindfulness Based Conversations (MBC), give an experiential understanding of mindfulness and will examine the application of mindfulness to consultation with teachers, parents and children and its potential benefits.
This workshop will include a broad introduction to mindfulness to those unfamiliar to the field and a coherent, structured model for the practice of mindfulness in our consultations (MBC) will be presented with its rationale and potential benefits.
An experiential understanding of mindfulness through a number of exercises that could be used within consultation will be presented. These include brief individual awareness exercises, a paired communication exercise and the use of cognitive defusion metaphors.
A number of short activities, resources and exercises that can be practically applied to consultation will then be introduced. These comprise of short reflective and attention exercises that can be carried out before, during and after an consultation. Exercises include bringing attention to sensations in the body, looking for mindful prompts within our conversations and identifying personnel triggers that inhibit mindfulness.
Educational and clinical psychologists, and all professionals who use consultation in their work (e.g. therapists, teachers, behaviour workers)
